Proceeds from the tournament will purchase new power wheelchairs for the North Georgia Screamin' Eagles Power Soccer Club.

Money raised by the festival will benefit two separate charities this year.

The first is Zac Brown's Camp Southern Ground, which is being built to help children with autism, ADD and ADHD. Campers will meet with specialty doctors, partake in camp activities with other children and learn healthy ways of eating food grown organically. Studies have shown foods organically grown are more beneficial to the health of children with those conditions.

The second charity is the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame, which pays tribute to the state's unique motorsports history.
